Hi All

Well it is nearly that time of the year again, namely our Annual General Meeting. As usual, it will be held at the South Tweed Sports Club, on Friday the 14th of July, 2017 starting at 10 am.

We will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year, believe it or not! Really, where does the time go?

Umm, I really don’t know where this idea came from. We are going to “Theme” it this year. To celebrate this Milestone Anniversary we have decided to have a Hawaiian theme. Please do feel free to dress accordingly; it would be fitting to have a room full of colour.

We have invited a couple of local dignitaries and Pat Trappel has organised really nice pastries” for afterwards. So please put this date on your calendar, and come along.

Oh, probably to my wife’s dismay, if there are 20-30 members out there coming to the AGM who may require a loan of a bright Hawaiian shirt, you should know whom to see.

Of course, don’t forget to get your raffle tickets in our annual raffle, to be drawn at the AGM. This year’s great prize is a new complete desktop computer – “You have to be in it to win it”.

On the Class front, our Dropbox Class is very well attended, with our regular classes  chugging along. We are starting a new class called “Putting Your Memories & Favourites to Videos or Movies” It will be held on Wednesdays mornings at 9:30 am, starting the first Wednesday in June 2017.

This class is all about how to use software such as Microsoft Powerpoint, Movie Maker, Fast-stone and many more, to make slideshows, movies and videos out of your photos and/or, videos. No matter what program you use, the process is nearly the same to add photos, music, videos and edit them. You can bring in all those favourite photos and learn to put them into slideshows, action them, then convert them into movies, videos or auto-
playing slideshows. You will learn to “Burn” them to DVD’s, USB, Memory Sticks or you can directly upload them to your offsite (cloud storage) site, enabling you to play them from anywhere on any device. So bring your photos along and get started.

That about all from me.

Good computing,
